I've had a trap dug and turned over two days in a row. It is a dirt hole set near a brush pile. It is set for coon and has yielded a couple good ones. Any ideas what could be doing this....

sounds to me like a yote. They are notorious about that but i have had coon uncover traps and flip the loose jaw over. Talk about smart those bigguns didnt get big by being stupid. Id replace with fresh scent free trap or move trap 2 or 3 feet one way or the other.

Id set it a little ways back and catch it before it starts digging.

Does it look like he's catching the trap while digging out the hole, or that he's purposefully digging at the trap? If the trap, you may need to switch out traps from that set as it would appear to have some scent contamination

its either a yote or fox because if they smell them, i hear they dig your trap up and fox especially, poop on them sometimes. so if i were you, id dye my traps if your in the mood for one
